I am a resident of Pocket-A, Siddartha Extension, New Delhi-110014 and an advocate by profession. We have been provided by dirty and stinky water since almost two weeks.The water coming from taps smell like an open-gutter. Even when the water is boiled (for making it consumable/fit for drinking) it stinks even more and becomes pale yellow in colour.
The dirty water is causing various ailments like food indigestion, skin allergies etc. We have informed our RWA-President regarding our plight but not much heed has been paid.
We would request Delhi Jal Board to please do the needful, without causing any further delay and get the pipelines checked for any mixing/leakages of sewerage pipes with the drinking water pipes.
If the supply of such water continues in our area then it may lead to spreading of other dangerous water-borne diseases, thereby adding to the plight of already disdained residents.
